“I was doing fine with this degree thing, but I didn’t want to work for a company that was dumb enough not to hire me without a piece of paper.” “I wanted to be the next Tony Robbins and start a psychotherapy practice. Then I figured out that sales and psychotherapy are fundamentally the same practice just with different payment mechanisms.” “There is a lot more commonality between being a VP of engineering and an individual contributor. Being a manager is almost something totally different.” —Peter Bell
